  • Sweet bejesus 3800x, 16gb 3200ram and a 2080.

    Nice work!

    If I wasn't holding out for a laptop I'd be on this.

  • GPU from Biostar
    16GB 3200MHz RAM, no latency or brand mentioned
    240GB 2.5" SSD , no brand ssd
    Allied 750W PSU , no brand psu

    I understand this is to hook people in at low price but I hope noobs don't get baited with low tier parts :(

    • If it does the job and comes with warranty, its still worth it. "You get what you pay for" is still in effect but its still good value.

    • "Noobs" don't care about latency and 2-3% performance gains here and there.

    • What were you expecting?

      These builds are cheaper than you can do yourself. You were expecting the premium priced components?

      • Wasn't expecting anything.

        Just helping out newcomers who might want to upgrade these components during building and save some cash rather then replacing down the line.

        Im sure my old granny wouldn't notice CL 18 RAM and low tier SSD but I sure as hell would.

        The CPU makes a nice headline but a PC is so much more than that.

  • If I get the 32GB ram what subtimings can I expect?

    • We've used GSkill Ripjaws V and Team TForce Delta in the past and currently. That's as specific as I can be as we use a variety of models according to available quantity etc.

      • My machine arrived this morning (previous deal with R9-3900X) and I can confirm that it uses GSkill Ripjaws V memory (16G * 2).

        I paid for an upgrade for the RAMs as I hate the dual 8GB stick. :-)

        The machine is superfast and firing up Photoshop 2020 only takes 1-2 seconds.
        By the way, I used their SATA SSD as my media caching drive and I bought another Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB NVMe from a local shop today.
        The only funny thing happened was that I got the BSOD, twice, when I reinstall the Win10 OS on my new NVMe drive. I have to follow other people online to temporary disable the onboard WiFi card before I installed the driver on Windows 10.
        The case is a Deepcool budget case but it looks elegant. The case has a LED strip on the front and I think I am happy to stay away from light pollution lol. The biggest downside for this case is that there is no 5.25 DVD/Bluray bay - yes I am old school.

        Luke is super helpful in handling my orders, I put a PO Box address and he contacted me personally to let me change the address.
        TechFast is highly recommended!

        PS: it would be great to update the BIOS as well. My X570 MB came with 1005 version of BIOS (Jan 2019 version) and there was a newer one released in late November.

  • Does anyone else think the price in the total is a bit clickbaity? Who's realistically going to opt for the RX580 to pair with an 3800X?

    • It's enough to 1080p game while you wait for next generation video cards.

    • Someone who is upgrading from eg a 4th gen Intel system, owns a decent graphics card already and for whom this is the best value entry into a modern architecture?

      • I have the 3930K & GTX1080 combo and I reckon it's still not worth the upgrade IMO.

        I will wait for the next Gen GPU as I still reckon it's not worth the extra cash for an ~ 20 - 25% GPU performance increase.

        Having said this, this is a very good deal if you are starting from scratch and after a performance system bang for buck.

        Cheers

        • same, got the 3930k on day one still working hard. back then I didn't know anything and my mate told me go for higher core count for future proof. over the past almost 7 years, 0 regret of the CPU choice. just replace gpu alone the way. and maybe finally i am think about the 4000ryzen series.

    • I had my previous deal graphics card swapped from RX570 4GB to GTX 1650 4GB due to low in stock. Initially, I thought it was a very slow card but currently, I am ok with it.
      I think it really depends on what you really after.
      I don't play games but I do a lot of video editing or potentially learn more After Effect - I have an intention to swap from Final Cut Pro X to Adobe series.

      Yes, I will look for an RTX2070/2080 deal in the near future to replace this card but those budget graphics card can always be used in other ways.

      My previous machine was 4th gen Xeon CPU (E3-1231 V3) with GTX960 and I can feel the new machine is flying. Thank you AMD lol.

      • Would the Quatro cards be a better option than main stream gaming cards ? For video editing that is, or is the gap now much closer between these and the workstation gfx cards ?

    • I bought the 3900x for my team at work. Couldn't give a (profanity) about the video card.

      If I was buying a machine of that caliber from our usual supplier its twice the price for that spec.

  • Kinda wish the CPU is 3700x or 3900x… Isn't 3800x kinda meh compared to these two, or am I just reading wrong reviews?

    • 3800x is a higher binned 3700x… they're both 8core/16thread, 3900x is the 12c iirc

      if you're gaming 8c/16t should last you for a very long time, since ps5 is rumored to have this spec

    • Effectively a 3800X for 3700X pricing so while 3700X would be better bang for buck versus 3800X pricing, theres no reason not to go the 3800X as far as I'm aware.

    • Depends, in the past the x800 product didn't provide much over the x700 product but this generation it turned out that AMD has binned the chips to a greater degree, so now you actually do get a better bin buying the 3800x to the point where a price increase over the 3700x (assuming you buy retail) may be justified.
      A lot of initial reviews went by the logic of previous generations, but if you're an overclocker particularly there's an actual difference this time. How much of a difference it makes stock I'm not sure, haven't kept up with it, but it could only be an improvement with how these chips intelligently boost.

  • No experienced gamer / builder would buy these builds, mis-matched parts, but for the inexperienced, its works.

    • oh, I think experienced gamers would, not sure about the hardware jockies though, but they shouldn't be looking at Techfast at all really

    • Yes, they would. In fact it's people with experience that appreciate the maximised bang for buck techfast offers. Sure, there are better components, but these get you into the highest possible CPU + GPU echelon at lowest cost, and allow you to upgrade later, if you wish to be gaming sooner/for less.

      • Agree. This explained exactly what I did. Buy the hardware with good potentials, plus bang for the buck, and figure out the rest, small upgrades, etc. myself :-)

  • deals like this must come with popcorn for comments

  • I went with this deal (3800X/RX580) on Black Friday.

    I am very happy with everything. I was quoted 10 business days for the build and it was shipped on the 10th business day and arrived in good time.

    The quality of components is good. No problems with anything so far and I've thrown heavy work at it. The RX580 performs as you'd expect, brilliant for 1080p gaming, much less brilliant for higher resolutions.

    The Ripjaws V kit was a nice surprise. I did upgrade to the MSI Mortar B450M motherboard which costs an extra $129. You lose some value by doing this because the B350 is bundled and you can almost buy a B450M for $129. But I decided it was such a good deal I was prepared to pay more, since a B450M would be more balanced. Techfast were nice enough to ship the B450M Mortar Max instead of the B450M Mortar, only a small difference but a gesture much appreciated.

    The little touches such as the good communication, free game codes, cable management, extra leads and screws, protective packaging, everything about this transaction has left me a huge fan of Techfast and I'd recommend them to anyone considering a system.

      Appreciate the write up and glad you're happy with your system!

    • I also ordered a similar Black Friday deal but haven't been back in Australia to check out my build.

      Just wondering, which games are available with the game codes?

      • With the GPU code Borderlands 3 and Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Breakpoint, with the CPU The Outer Worlds plus there's 3 months of Xbox Game Pass for PC. I've redeemed the codes but haven't played any of these yet, too much work at the moment.

  • Hi if i buy this it comes with all the extra stuff from the motherboard/gpu and psu right? I've never bought a prebuilt before and i wasnt sure

    • My build came with the motherboard's box containing the paper instructions and AMD game voucher code. Think there was a couple of extra SATA cables as well from the mobo

    • That's right - whatever isn't included in your build that comes with the product will be shipped, excluding packaging.

  • Would there be a deal around 3900X for Boxing Day?

  • Merry Xmas all, just wondering how the $1000 build would perform with WoW? Ideally looking for something that would play it well for the next couple of years. I tend to use a second monitor and watch tv at the same time as well.

  • Jumped on a similar deal to this Ryzen7 2080super deal last month; https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/495992. Been very happy with the purchase since, and good delivery time. Was missing a game code, but their customer service fixed that up pronto.
    Would recommend for anyone sitting on the fence.

  • Hi, I'd like to purchase the PC now but wont be at the delivery address until late February of next year. Is it possible to withhold delivery until that time?

    • Yep that's fine. Please enter don't ship until X DATE in the Notes field on the Cart page before Checkout and we'll hold it for you.

  • @luketechfast: What's the brand of the stuff for 32GB 3.2GHz RAM and 1TB NVME SSD, if you don't mind me asking?

  • Also very happy with my 3900x 2080ti build as well happily recommend techfast

  • I've had a relatively good experience with Techfast for a 3900x 2080 Ti build from a previous deal (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/492935) and received it on the week it was promised. I ordered on 17/11 and the package arrived on 11/12; this was well within the expectations they set.

    I'm definitely happy with it and have only had a bit of bad luck: lost peripherals (which they graciously refunded me for), some recent fan trouble, and the resulting low-level rattling (will likely bring it up with them if I can't resolve after the holidays). Stay tuned for any after-sales support feedback.

    A few things to consider after my experience:
    *Good value for what you get: Ok parts, solid assembly, secure packaging, tracked delivery, a tested system with out-of-the box playability (just had to slot in the graphics card), and some nifty game codes
    *Good customer service: I received very timely comms on delivery delays and they refunded a package that didn't arrive
    *Limited brand visibility on parts: It was a nervous game of Russian roulette for some of the unspecified parts (I eventually received a Gigabyte NVMe M.2 SSD, Gigabyte 750H 80+ Gold PSU, G Skill Trident Z 3200MHz RAM, and a Deepcool 240mm liquid cooler). Note that this works out for me anyway as I chose the build with the intention of upgrading over time.

    In all, despite a few niggly things, I'd definitely buy from Techfast again. Their value proposition is attractive, I can't fault their customer service so far, and I've been enjoying a 3900x 2080 Ti combo for well under the asking price.

    Thanks @luketechfast and the team for getting this rig assembled and on my desk before the holidays!

      Glad you're happy with it! Let me know about the fans if you need to. For anyone wondering, we prefer to ship 2080 Tis unassembled after stress testing for the end user to install, due to the heavier heatsinks posing a higher risk of damage during transit. Cheers

  • Hi Luke, are you able to do the build with the 2080 super and MSI Ventus upgrade with the 3900x instead?

  • Heads up the PSU upgrade on the 580/5700(xt) build is $49 in the post but displays as $69 in the customize build menu on the site

  • Is there any deals where it's just the motherboard + CPU* & Ram bundle? Happy with the current setup I have right now but would like to move onto AMD.

  • Wanting to buy but need to wait a few days, what date does this deal expire?

  • Hi Luke, haven’t been able to add this computer in the cart. I’ve tired IE, safari & chrome including deleting the cookies & histories. Cheers…

  • Looks to be working…. Thanks Luke. Now to decide between the 3500x 2080Super vs 3800x 2080Super deal.

  • Debating picking this up with the RX580 or the cheaper 3500 deal with the GTX 1660 ….

    Seeing as I'll mainly be using it for work my head says get the 3800 with more cores but then again I'll only be doing some photo editing, word processing and using our in house publishing software which is cloud based… so it also seems over kill :D

  • Considering pulling the trigger on this deal after work today (if it's still up).

    Would people recommend upgrading the board to the MSI Mortar and the PSU to the gold?

    I could do these upgrades later but seeing as I'd get nothing trying to sell the biostar motherboard and unbranded PSU on Gumtree it works out easier and probably cheaper just doing the techfast upgrades. Works out to be $1206 shipped with the RX580.
